|Life after Calder House|
At the end of their time at Calder House, the vast majority of our pupils transfer successfully to mainstream schools and go on to thrive within them. They take the change from a small nurturing environment to larger mainstream schools in their stride.
Pupils from Calder House go on to a wide variety of school in both the independent and state sectors. Click here to find out more about them.
We are delighted to receive feedback from our former pupils as well as visits from them. Messages from the parents of past pupils and from the pupils themselves testify to the long term benefits and effectiveness of the teaching and support given at Calder House.
